Novel Featuring Scilly Released Next Month

Author, Linda McDonald

The first of two novels that features St Agnes will go on sale next month.

‘Meeting Lydia’ is the first of two books with a local angle by Kent-based author, Linda MacDonald.

Linda holidays regularly at the Parsonage on St Agnes and she wanted to include the islands with an historical angle. She says the best authors write about what they know.

It’s the story of a woman who is having a mid-life crisis of confidence and tracks down a former male school friend on a social networking site.

Twists in the plot bring an archaeologist to the island and includes a significant discovery he makes in Scilly.

Meeting Lydia has been published by Troubaour and the book will be available at the Paper shop and online.
